Assistant Professor Position in Analytical Chemistry

As part of the continuing growth of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toledo we are pleased to announce a search for an approved tenure-track faculty position in the area of analytical chemistry and the anticipated approval for a position in biochemistry.  The candidates who are identified to fill these positions will have the opportunity to develop their independent career in a highly supportive, interdisciplinary environment with considerable opportunities for collaboration in a variety of research areas.

The analytical faculty in our department are taking on big challenges.  Research in the analytical division includes the design of selective microelectrodes for the quantitation of compounds of biological interest and the development of new mass spectrometric techniques that are being applied in areas as diverse as processed food samples, human fatigue biomarkers and tissue imaging.  Ground breaking work is being conducted in the synthesis and application of ionic liquids with customized properties as solvents for biomass conversion, incorporation of magnetic properties for selective microextraction and analysis, and the detection of genotoxic impurities in pharmaceutical preparations.

The field of biochemistry remains a growth area in our department, with recently introduced undergraduate B.A. and B.S. degree programs and the pending expansion of our name to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Research in this field includes projects focused on all classes of biomolecules.  Carbohydrate research is focused on glycopeptide-based cancer antigens, immunological studies of carbohydrate vaccines and the development of stereoselective synthetic methods. Mechanistic studies are being carried out on DNA replication/repair and on the investigation of protein-lipid interactions for the structural study of membrane proteins.      Research in the area of protein chemistry applies techniques in enzymology and structural biology to investigate problems as diverse as enzyme catalytic mechanisms to novel approaches for the development of new classes of antibiotics.

Five NSF CAREER awardees and multiple active NIH grants in our department speak to the quality of our faculty, especially in the analytical and biochemistry areas. Outstanding instrumental support includes access to multiple high-field NMR spectrometers, MALDI-MS, ESI-MS, and a SYNAPT HDMS ion mobility mass spectrometer, as well as an array of powder, small molecule, macromolecule and ultra-high resolution X-ray diffractometers. Additional details on these and other available instrumentation can be obtained from the Instrumentation Center website (

We invite applications from well-qualified candidates who are eager to contribute to the future of our department. Additional details about the Department of Chemistry can be found on our website (
